Maryland Space Grant Consortium members partnered on a winning proposal for NASA's Innovative Pilot in STEM Education opportunity.  Dr. Carl White (Morgan State University) is the Principal Investigator.  Co-Investigators include:  Dr. Guangming Chen & Myra Curtis (MSU), Dianne Veenstra (Capitol College), Dr. Paige Smith (U. MD College Park), Dr. Anne Spence (U. MD Baltimore County), & Dr. Derrek B. Dunn (U. MD Eastern Shore).  The proposal, Maryland Elite Researchers In-Training (MERIT) Program, will increase undergraduate student retention in STEM education at the participating institutions.

Professor Yacob Astatke of Morgan State University has been awarded the national Distinguished Teaching Award from the American Society for Engineering Education for 2013.  Cangratulations, Yacob!  One of the items cited for his award was his outstanding leadership of the Morgan State contingent of the Maryland Space Grant Consortium's Balloon Payload Program.
